Fresno DJ | MUSIC EXPRESS | DJ in Fresno CA | 5549.325.8625 | has spent the last two weekends performing at China Peak. This is unusual for us to be at he same location two weeks in a row. Usually we travel to different venues every week, and it is not even unusual for us to be in different cities every weekend. There are a lot of cities around the Central Valley where we perform often.
China Peak was a beautiful place to have a wedding. The first week we were there we went on top of the mountain for the wedding! This was gorgeous as it overlooked Hunnington Lake. I call this God’s country because everything is so pristine and beautiful.
This was a great place to have a wedding, and the lodge had a great area for the reception as well. The food was really good and the bridal party had a great time dancing with all the other guests all night long. The bride picked out some of her favorite songs to dance to for her wedding night
The bride and groom were from Visalia the first week, and the bride and groom the second week were from Los Angeles and New York. The guests from New York really loved to dance. They made sure we knew that they had traveled across the country for this wedding. Everyone was real friendly, and they loved it at the end of the night when we played the song New York New York. They all made a circle and kicked their legs up in the air.
There were a lot of requests from the guest as well. We kept the place going for hours! The dancing kept going all night long until the end of the night. We finally stopped so the guests at the lodge were able to get some sleep.
The venue you choose, the food, the flowers, your centerpieces, etc. all say something about who you are and your tastes. When it comes to choosing your music this should be a reflection of you and your new spouse as well.
The most important factor when hiring a wedding dj is to look for someone that has experience. Now we are not talking about any type of dj experience; we are talking about specific wedding experience with satisfied brides. This is extremely important! How do you know if they have satisfied bride? Take a look at their website for positive testimonials. Also, you can always ask for some references from past brides and grooms. We have served well over a thousand satisfied brides over the years.
The second most important factor is the ability of the dj to act as a master of ceremonies. This includes much more than just making announcements. The wedding dj also has to be able to keep all the event of the wedding on track, and work with other vendors such as the photographer and the caterer so that everything is right on cue.
The third item in the big three is the ability of the dj to get your guests on the dance floor. This is accomplished by picking out the right music at the right time, and also by encouraging your guests to dance utilizing the microphone. This needs to be done in a classy fashion.
This information will surely help you pick the right wedding dj! Happy wedding planning!
Your wedding dj
Today we went to a bridal fair at Wolf Lakes! Wolf Lakes is a gorgeous venue with a man made lake where you can take boat rides on your wedding day. The grounds are well kept, the building are wonderful, and the food is amazing. This is definitely one of the best venues in the Fresno/Clovis/Sanger area. You should put this on your list of places to explore when you plan your wedding. We are on the approved vendor list for djs; you have to hire someone on the list at this venue.
This is a question that many couples will ask me. My answer is always the same. This depends on how you and your future spouse feels about having one.
The money dance is derived out of a tradition whereby guests at a wedding would give the bride and groom money for their honeymoon. In this manner, couples were able to afford going on a nicer honeymoon than they might have originally planned.
So, the money dance is an opportunity for your guests to send you off on your honeymoon. This is also know coincidentally as the “honeymoon dance”.

Should we have the first dance after the bridal party introductions or after the cutting of the cake? This is one of those questions that brides ask while they are planning their wedding.
While it is entirely proper to do it either way, there are pros and cons to having your first dance after the bridal party introductions. The pros being that your guests are already focused on you after the bridal party introduction, and this is a dramatic time to have your first dance while all your guests are still present. The cons being that this is one of the highlights of the reception, and then you are going to stop all the excitement to sit down and have dinner. Many guests will think that they have already seen you dance so they may leave at the end of dinner.
When you save the first dance until after dinner, this is the time to engage your guests in your reception celebration. The first dance will be followed usually by the father/daughter dance, the mother/dance, and then an all dance number which kicks off the dancing for the evening!
Remember it is your choice and the bride should always have things in the manner she would like them on her wedding day!
When is the most appropriate time to introduce the bride and groom’s parents? In my opinion, the best time to do this is in the middle of dinner long before the toast. This gives your parents the attention they deserve before everyone gets involved in all the other events that will take place during the reception. The announcement of your parents is traditional.
